Radio Rumpus Room was hosted by Ron and Jean and was heard every Friday night from 9:00 to 10:30 on KFAI-FM, 90.3 FM Minneapolis, 106.7 FM St. Paul, and KFAI.org. The show retired in May, 2010.
Bonus: This week's "Crap From The Past", the show that aired after "Radio Rumpus Room", is here in its entirety.
As we wind down the last shows of our 19 years on-air, it seemed only proper to have on a trio that has been indelibly linked to RRR: Big Surf. Chris and Phil and Steve allowed us to share a stage with them for four-odd years, during the better part of the run of the monthly First Saturday Surf Stomp (aka Surf Night) at the Hexagon Bar. Checkout the half dozen thunderers Surf Stomp's host band performed in our little concrete- and glass block-lined shack on East Lake Street!
Thanks to our compadres in Big Surf -- Chris Goodnight (drums), Phil Belknap (guitar), and Steve Ringat (bass) -- for the live sounds during tonight's show. Yow!
